Photocopy scripts

Scope and Content

This sub-class contains a series of modern photocopies of scripts and associated material, the originals of which are not included in the archive. The originals date from 1933 to 1958, and apart from FRD1/2/3/5 (a copy of T.S. Eliot's Murder in the Cathedral) they all relate to films in which RD appeared. The process of shooting Goodbye, Mr. Chips is well-represented here, in the form of a shooting schedule, work orders and daily call sheets for filming.


This material was photocopied by the Donat family before the archive came to the Library, presumably sometime during the early-mid 1990s. FRD1/2/1 includes some original scripts relating to Goodbye, Mr. Chips and The Inn of the Sixth Happiness.
